What can I say, amazing stay at Rhino River Camp. Everything was perfect from our arrival into the camp at first being welcomed by the staff with nice smelling cooling towels and a refreshing drink after our journey from Nairobi.
The tents were great and really well thought out, very spacious giving you a separate sitting room to enjoy the views and nature around you. The river was quite full because of the heavy rains but it was very relaxing to hear the soothing sounds of it flowing in the room.
The pool area was nice and good size for the camp with a clean look and was refreshing to have a dip after a hot day.
Now onto the food - WOW it was fantastic, if I had stayed a few more days don't think would have been able to walk out of there. The chefs know how to make a truly inspiring meal, everything was so fresh and it all tasted awesome, me being a vegetarian, I found everything was so good you had to go for seconds. The Italian dishes were to die for, fresh lasagne, fresh pizza, fresh pasta, salads, bread, all would put any restaurant in Nairobi to shame.
The bush breakfast was a great surprise, after staying at other lodges in Kenya you expect to get a soggy sandwich and lukewarm coffee, but this was a feast with a full out breakfast in the bush experience - all the little details were thought off and it was excellent.
Alberto the manager was awesome and so were all the staff, they took extra good care of us and made us feel very much at home. They were very accommodating and so friendly that we even decided to stay an extra night. There was no pressure or rush to get you out and we felt welcome and free to spend some time at the lodge.
Wake up calls were right on time to be welcomed with one of the best coffees we've had in a lodge and some tasty home made biscuits.
The staff also went out of their way to wash my car after the safaris where it was full of mud and I didn't even know until I got in for the next safari! That is going the extra mile!
I can't thank Alberto and the crew for this excellent break from Nairobi and will definitely be back for another visit in 2014!
